The Digital Printing Association (DIPA) was founded for the leading trade fair LIGNA 2019 by the companies HOMAG Group, MB Digitalprint, Deutsche Messe AG, Li & Co, Durst Phototechnik and Adler-Werk Lackfabrik.
DIPA takes a holistic view of the individual surface design process and wants to make digital printing accessible to as many users as possible as an innovative process. It sees itself as a “common future workshop” for topics such as consulting, knowledge transfer and standardization or certification.
DIPA’s most important goal is to make digital printing accessible as an innovative process for manufacturers in the industries mentioned.
The new working group brings together experts from all process steps of industrial surface design using digital printing with companies that are already successfully using this technology. The technology partners would like to offer access to digital printing for companies that deal with surface design.
“We want to show the multiple possibilities offered by digital printing today, and provide them with the necessary knowledge for it.”
Ali Özyilmaz, CEO MB Digitalprint
Digital Printing Association (DIPA) represents and offers a cooperation network for SMEs and industrial companies that are involved in different steps of the value-added process of an individually created surface. We support network members on their way to a perfectly individually created surface and offer an important platform facilitating the exchange between companies.
The aim of DIPA is to enable more design opportunities through the versatile possibilities of digital printing and to promote digital printing as an innovative process for surface creation.
We at DIPA are convinced that goals are better pursued and pushed forward together. We therefore decided to initiate the founding of an association and are now on the way from an interest group to the registered association, the DIPA e.V.
- a cooperation network with periodical meetings
- direct contact with producers, suppliers & marketers
- access to a network of potential partners and customers
- more power in the alliance to develop the market
- promotion opportunities at trade fairs and events
- internet & social media presence
- knowledge transfer through symposia lecture events & workshops
- (advanced) training opportunities in the DIPA Academy
- supporting market relevant developments
The network of DIPA is aimed at all companies involved in the value chain of an individually created surface: from companies that already successfully apply digital printing, to suppliers of machinery or consumer goods, to other service providers contributing to the creation of an optimal digital surface.
